University Outreach
and Associate Provost

It is my pleasure to welcome you to University Outreach at Auburn University. As a land-grant institution, Auburn has a special legacy in serving the community beyond campus through Outreach. For more than a century, Auburn University's outreach mission has been reaching out and working with citizens, professionals, businesses, schools and government to help people meet their educational goals and to improve quality of life all across our state.

Simply put, we Instruct, we Assist, and we Engage:

  • University Outreach provides accessible educational opportunities for all ages, including summer academic camps and college preparatory programs for youth, professional and job training courses for working adults, and lifelong learning programs for seniors.
  • University Outreach provides technical and strategic assistance to public and private entities, businesses, schools, governments and civic organizations, to solve problems, improve systems, and encourage innovation. Outreach also assists individuals and families with personal development programs for health, well-being and individual enrichment.
  • University Outreach engages with communities to create civic partnerships and promote greater accessibility to Auburn’s educational resources – especially to those in underserved areas.
